Why do women make better con artists than men? In the trailer for Chris Addison’s The Hustle, it’s because Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson make one hell of a team, taking down mark after mark because the world underestimates them.
Hathaway leans into her Ocean’s 8 M.O. of a woman who most of the world sees as a pretty face, but who then also does crimes. Wilson signs on as her protégé and accomplice in a loose remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
The trailer offers little beside the dynamics of their relationship and multiple mid-con gags, but honestly, that’s all we need! Hathaway was clearly having a grand time in Ocean’s 8 and we’re happy to see her riding the wave.
The Hustle hits theaters May 10.
